Big Data is taking off in financial services markets as firms begin to pull together structured and unstructured data, and implement enterprise and risk apps dedicated to issues including finding alpha, managing conduct risk and analysing market sentiment.

The challenges and opportunities of Big Data were debated during a recent A-Team webinar entitled Practical Uses of Big Data in Data Management. The webinar was moderated by Andrew Delaney, chief content officer at A-Team Group, and joined by experts James Lowry, head of global exchange EMEA, State Street; Adam Baron, director, Big Data quantitative research, Starmine, Thomson Reuters; and Stuart Grant, risk & compliance solutions manager, capital markets, SAP.
